The Larson Electronics EPLC2-LB-25LED-RT Hazardous Location Low Bay LED Light Fixture provides operators with a powerful alternative to traditional hazardous location luminaries. Capable of replacing 125-watt metal halide lamps, this 25-watt low bay LED unit emits 3,500 lumens, carries an IP67 waterproof rating and features an extended lifespan of 60,000+ hours. The factory sealed, hazardous location fixture is protected by a copper-free aluminum housing with an epoxy powder coated finish.
The EPLC2-LB-25LED-RT is a Class I, Division 2 and Class II, Divisions 1 & 2 hazardous location light fixture that is designed for energy efficient and superior illumination in combustible environments. This 25-watt low bay fixture offers 3,500 lumens of high quality light with a color temperature of 5600K. We also offer a 3000K warm white and 4500K natural white color temperature options (longer lead times may apply for non-standard temperatures). Serving as a suitable replacement for 125-watt metal halide lamps, a color rendering index of 75 ensures colors and details are produced more accurately than high pressure sodium or mercury vapor luminaries.
This low bay lighting solution for explosive sites is IP67 rated, dust-proof and protected against high pressure jets and temporary submersion. The copper-free aluminum alloy housing is specially designed to dissipate heat which increases the efficiency and lifespan of the LEDs and electronic components. An epoxy powder coated finish facilitates durability and an attractive aesthetic appearance. Special heat dissipating design in conjunction with LED technology helps this fixture to achieve an excellent 60,000-hour rated lifespan with 80% lumen retention. The hazardous location low bay LED light also offers operators convenience in the form of field serviceability.
LED Benefits: Unlike gas burning and arc type lamps that have glass bulbs, LEDs have no filaments or fragile housings to break during operation and/or transportation. Instead of heating a small filament or using a combination of gases to produce light, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use semi-conductive materials that illuminate when electric current is applied, providing instant illumination with no warm up or cool down time before re-striking. Because there is no warm up period, this light can be cycled on and off with no reduction in lamp life.
LED lights run at significantly cooler temperatures than traditional metal halide and high pressure sodium lights and contain no harmful gases, vapors, or mercury, making them both safer and more energy efficient. No extra energy is wasted in cooling enclosed work areas due to external heat emissions from bulb type lights, and the operator risks associated with traditional lighting methods, such as accidental burns and exposure to hazardous substances contained in the glass bulbs, are eliminated. In addition, LEDs are also safer for the environment as they are 100% recyclable, which eliminates the need for costly special disposal services required with traditional gas burning and arc type lamps.
LED Drivers: Even in LED fixtures, heat is the single largest factor in premature light failure and color shifting. As a result, many manufacturers reduce the output of their LEDs in order to reduce the amount of heat produced. Rather than lower light output or quality, Larson Electronics addresses this problem with the addition of an electronic LED driver. This internal driver provides the ability to automatically monitor and adjust input current to maintain the correct LED voltage levels regardless of input levels across a specific range. This not only reduces the energy dissipation, effectively lowering the operating temperature of the fixture, but also prevents AC over-voltage and short circuit loading making this fixture virtually maintenance free. Because the electronic driver allows the EPLC2-LB-25LED-RT to run at a cooler internal temperature and regulates the electrical current, energy efficiency and LED service hours are maximized while at the same time reducing operating costs and downtime incurred from the frequent servicing intervals required with other hotter running lights.
Voltage: This light is universal voltage capable and can be operated with 100-277V AC, 50/60Hz. We also offer a low voltage version of this LED fixture that operates on AC/DC voltages from 11-25 Volts.
Wiring: The EPLC2-LB-25LED-RT
is equipped with 10 feet of abrasion and chemical resistant 16/3 SOOW cable with flying leads. A total of five, 3/4" NPT threaded ports for running conduit is available, depending on the location of the installation. Four of the ports are located on the corners of the unit and the fifth port is found at the rear of the LED fixture. This unit is factory sealed and does not require a seal off.
Mount: This hazardous location low bay LED light comes standard with wall/surface and pendant mounting features, which cater to installations that hang from the ceiling. Compared to high bay lights, low bay fixtures are recommended for lower mounting heights ranging between 15' to 40'.
Suggested Applications: Paint spray booths, aircraft maintenance, oil drilling rigs, refineries, solvent and cleaning areas, chemical manufacturing, waste treatment plants, gas processing plants and more.

|Each LED light fixture has the potential to save $150.00+ per year in electricity alone, not including maintenance costs, operational downtime, reduced productivity, HVAC loads, or carbon footprint. When retrofitting an entire facility with 100s of light fixtures, the return on investment of LED over metal halide becomes evident.
